Meet the WholeKids Pediatrics Staff
The WholeKids team is committed to caring for our patients and for ourselves. We laugh a lot and have a good time celebrating events in our lives with food, more food and comraderie. We lunch together when we can (food again!) and are honored to work together to improve the health and well being of our patients.
Mary is our front desk administrator and comes to us from Ohio Health. She brings years of patient experience to the position. She enjoys ensuring patients are cared for and likes to laugh a lot. Mary is a problem solver and will go to great lengths to ensure that patients' needs are attended to.
John is our office manager. John is an avid golfer and motorcycle enthusiast. In addition, he is a rabid college football fan and most notably a Buckeye. He is passionate about making sure that our patients and families are taken care of in the most professional manner possible at WholeKids. He has an open door policy and is willing to address any concerns that arise.
We are striving to improve the patient experience in our office at every interaction our patients have.
